The Everards beers that used to be regulars have now been replaced by Batemans XB, which can be found on the smaller bar in a drinking corridor between the front and back rooms. Four other hand pumps in the front bar have an interesting variety of guest ales, often from local breweries such as Tring. The front room is in bare boards ale house style, with a couple of upended barrels as well as the usual tables and chairs. Through the corridor there is an option (on the right) to take your drinks out into the yard (sunny and crowded days only), or there's the smaller back room, or (past the toilets) the smokers yard at the back.

The landlady and regulars take pride in a review which described the pub as "quirky", but apart from the fact that almost all of the people I have met here support Luton Town, I have seen little real evidence of this. It's always very busy here on Luton Town match days, and away fans may be turned away if they are wearing colours, even if they can get the door to open.

A destination venue for ale (though as mentioned below, the large solid exterior door does make you wonder if they are open and it requires a good shove to get through!). There were five ales on when I visited on Tuesday (Oakham JHB, Atomic Brewery Fusion and Crystal Tips, Crouch Vale Essex Boys and RCH Hewish Mild) which were in pretty good shape along with a couple of interesting keg choices as well as Stowford Press keg cider. The bar is to the left as you enter and to the right is a slightly mad souk area of books, television, fireplace, old whisky barrels and assorted nik-naks. I settled in at the bar and got chatting with a couple of the locals and the licensee which helped the ale go down easily but meant I didn’t pay much attention to the rest of the surrounds.

I liked this one and I’d make a point of coming back here another time. Combined with the English Rose, this is a good reason to come out to Luton if you fancy a short but enjoyable crawl.

Have to say the beer quality was struggling Mon eve, 3 of 4 beers tried were far from good. Let's hope it was just a blip (possibly the indecisive weather - atmospheric influence?). Further to my earlier comment, the HBs did look a little happier.

Everards Tiger & Beacon, B&T Wembley Wobble, Milton Pegasus, Tring Royal Poacher– went, immediately replaced by Ramsbury Gold. Attractive woody look to the pub and warm ambience as you enter, bar to left of front room, wood tables&chairs, 3 tall barrels provide glass support & good view of plasma opposite bar (showing rugby ystdy), bookcase shelves either side give a homely feel. Further on to a second, smaller, room with a scattering of small tables and a tv quietly showing skysports news. Apparently gets busy pre-match if Luton are at home, but no sign of glass-backlog or anything when we arrived at 15:20. The £8.60 round (3pints) was the dearest of the day up here, and the exterior hanging baskets really need replanting to give a more cared-for look, but I very much liked the pub.
